Miss Margaret (Peggy) Roberts MEd age 98, former president of OMEP


Of interest to people who may have known Miss Margaret (Peggy) Roberts MEd age 98 former president of OMEP.

She’s in the Royal Worcester hospital London after a fall two weeks ago, which broke her thigh (she was visiting her niece when it happened) – sadly she’s now not expected to recover.

We didn’t finish her book, although quite a bit is done and working on it kept her going. I was helping her to organise and transcribe it.

Please can you pass this message onto people who should know – and ask them to contact me for news.

Very best wishes Jan (former Child Development student)
